Institute Presentation


INMED is post genomic basic and applied research centre dedicated to understand how the brain matures and how neurological disorders are generated by genetic mutations and environmental insults relying on a unique ensemble of in utéro transfection, physiological and imaging platforms. INMED also includes a variety of students (high schools, medical students and associations of neurological disorder patients).

The research aims of INMED is to study brain development, plasticity and brain disorders that are often initiated during brain maturation -- notably epilepsies, ischemic strokes, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer and other major neurological disorders. A particularly prominent aspect of research is devoted to the effects of environmental insults in-utero on brain development and its end function in adults.

INMED - INSERM UMR 901 is a multidisciplinary institution with 20 years of experience in developmental neuro-physiology and epilepsy. Studies performed by INMED researchers were the first to describe the main features of GABA in developing neurons.

Researchers involved in the project have developed a wide range of unique preparations and techniques that will be employed, including the intact hippocampus preparation (Khalilov) and high-performance recordings from pups in vivo (Khazipov). State of-the art non-invasive techniques of measurements of GABA signalling and the resting membrane potential using cell-attached recordings of single GABA and NMDA channels were largely elaborated and are now extensively used at INMED (Tyzio, Minlebaev).
